Pryor Cashman’s premier Real Estate Group guides, defends, and advocates for clients through various real estate issues in New York City and across the U.S. With decades of experience representing every type of player in the real estate market, the firm has handled a diverse range of transactions and has established a proven track record of victories in sophisticated real estate matters involving high-profile parties and properties across the U.S. and internationally.

Of her new role as co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate Group, partner Danielle Schechner states: “New York City is considered one of the most competitive real estate markets in the world.
